Luther: "Young scholars and students are the seeds 
and fountains of the church ; unless there be schools, where 
shall others be found to take our places after we shall have 
departed? For the sake of the church we must have and 
support Christian schools . God preserves the church through 
the schools." 

" If no other benefit should accrue from the languages, we 
ought to be delighted and enthused at least by this fact, that 
they are such a noble, precious gift of God, whereby the 
Gospel has come, has grown, and been preserved. As dear 
as the Gospel is to us, as earnestly let us contend in behalf 
of the languages ; and it is not likely that we shall retain 
the Gospel without the languages. Languages are the scab- 
bard in which this sword of the spirit is kept ; they are the 
shrine in which this treasure is carried ; they are the recep- 
tacle into which this potion is poured. Aye, should we — 
God prevent it! so blunder as to let go of the languages, 
we shall not only lose the Gospel, but it shall finally come 
to this, that we shall not be able correctly to speak or write 
either Latin or German."

Conover, the central point of Catawba county, in the State 
of North Carolina, and located in what is known as the 
Piedmont Section of the State, is a corporate town of 300 
inhabitants. The Western North Carolina R. R., a division 
of the Richmond and Danville system of railroads, connects 
it with the East and West, and the Chester and Lenoir R. R. 
with the South. Daily passenger trains are run in all direc- 
tions. Mails are received twice every day. 

On account of its location among the spurs which shoot 
from the Blue Ridge mountains in the western part of the 
State, and, at places, render the landscape highly picturesque, 
Conover enjoys a salubrious climate. The town is built on 
a ridge which forms the watershed of the county. The air 
is pure and balmy from the abundance of pine forests ; springs 
and wells furnish clear, fresh, free-stone water. The winters 
are of brief duration, and generally mild, and the summers 
are not too warm. 

The inhabitants, with few exceptions, follow agricultural 
pursuits. As all the necessaries of life are produced in the 
immediate neighborhood, and the farmer does not find a 
ready market for his produce, living is exceptionally cheap. 
There are no saloons or theatres within a radius of forty 
miles (probably more). 

The population of the town and county is almost entirely 
Lutheran. A new brick church for Concordia E. L. con- 
gregation, the local congregation, is in course of construc- 
tion. There are located in Catawba county upwards of 
fourteen Lutheran houses of worship. A strong Lutheran 
element is found also in all the adjoining counties. 

The College occupies an elevated place within the limits 
of corporation. It is a double-storied frame building with

cupola and belfry, containing a spacious chapel and two 
lecture rooms on the first, and four lecture rooms and a cab- 
inet, in which scientific instruments are kept, on the second 
floor. Two of the rooms on the second floor are, at present, 
occupied by the literary societies of the College. The cam- 
pus embraces seven acres, and is studded with shade-trees. 
Fifty yards from the College is the dormitory, a brick struct- 
ure, two stories high, with a hall on each floor running the 
entire length of the building. It contains sixteen rooms, 
which serve as studies and sleeping apartments for the stu- 

The entire college property is owned by the Board of Trus- 
tees, which is composed of members of the Lutheran church. 
Educationally the school is under the control of the English 
Synod of Missouri and other States.

Written examinations will be held at the close of each 
term. The result of these examinations in connection with 
the records of class -standing will be the basis of promotion. 

At the close of each term, a report concerning deportment 
and literary attainments will be sent the parents or guar- 
dians of the students. The good results expected from these 
reports will greatly depend on the attention bestowed on 
them by the parties receiving them. 

Persons applying for admission, when not well known to 
some member of the Faculty, will be required to present tes- 
timonials of good moral character. If the applicant has at- 
tended a school before he should bring a written certificate 
from his last tutors. Students may be received into any 
class for which they are prepared by previous study. (Re- 
garding requirements on Course of Instruction, page 8). 

The College is under the supervision of a Board of Trus- 
tees. During recitations every student is under the govern- 
ment and discipline of his professor. The general discipline 
of all students is in the hands of the President of the Facul- 
ty. Gross violations of the rules of the college will be acted 
upon by the President and Faculty jointly. The students 
will be led to regard the College as a home, in which all 
share common duties as well as privileges.

The Eurythmian and Rho-Sigma-Tau Societies, connected 
with the College, meet every Friday evening. The aims are 
to develop the powers of members in composition, declama- 
tion , and oratory ; and to acquaint themselves with the rules 
of deliberative bodies. 


A reading room, located in the dormitory and thus easily 
accessible to all students, has been fitted out. A number of 
religious and secular papers, periodicals, and magazines, is 
constantly kept on file, and is to be increased as opportuni- 
ties present themselves. Books of reference which are kept 
in this room add much to its usefulness. 

Under the direction of Prof. G. A. Romoser, the chief li- 
brarian, the library has been removed to a suitable room 
in the dormitory, and has been duly graded and classified. 
It now contains over 500 volumes. 


All donations, whether in the form of moneys, bequests, 
books, or otherwise, will be gratefully received by any mem- 
ber of the Board of Trustees or Faculty. 

For further information, address the President of College, 
or any member of the Faculty, at Conover, North Carolina.
